simontomlinson (556) - Blackburn, Lancashire, ENGLAND - OCT 7, 2017
Off white, thin beige head on a rich brown still body. Malt, bread & demerara aroma. Medium bodied, oily, smooth, minimal carbonation. Clean on the finish. Malt, roasted hints, caramel, dark sugar & a rich, warming feel. Not too bad.

hohops (1065) - Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 30, 2017
Appearance- dark, mahogany, a small foamy beige head. Aroma- brown bread, toffee, plum, chocolate hints, dark fruit, raisin, hints of port wine. Taste- plenty of dark fruit, chocolate, toffee and caramel, woody malt, raisin and plum. Some sugary sweetness. Fuller than expected mouthfeel for the abv. Pretty good.

dynamiteninja (1875) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - JUL 19, 2017
Bottle. Mahogany body. Loose tan head that immediately dissipates. Nose is rich red fruit, mahogany, grassy hops, pears and some toffee. Sweet with some sour notes and a dry finish. Moderate carbonation. Some oiliness in the mouthfeel.

2.8
MrTipple (5956) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 22, 2015
Aroma: intense caramel, bread and grain malts. Appearance: clear, dark brown, small, creamy, beige head. Taste: light sweet. Palate: sweets continue, caramel, bread malts, grain, light bitters coming up, dry, bitter finish. Overall: very malty, super low ABV, not sure what this is exactly, not offending, but an Old Ale, really? Bottle from the brewery shop, Lewes.

4.3
DIBBLE (103) - Worthing, West Sussex, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2015
275ml bottle from Harveys Brewery Shop. Clear dark mahogany brown ale with light and lacey tan head. Feint sweet malty aroma. Slightly watery and oily mouthfeel but flavour is balanced really well. Taste is like brown sugar over malty cereal with a distant hop edge which lingers in the long medium dry finish. A really satisfying drink.

Scopey (15431) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 22, 2014
Bottle picked up at Harvey’s. It pours deep brown with a decent beige head. The nose is toasty, earth, burnt wood, caramel and dried fruits. The taste is bitter-sweet, treacle, caramel, cola, wood, candy, wood, earth and dried fruits with a dry finish. Light-medium body and fine carbonation. No real depth to it. Simple and easy-going.

3.1
MichaelAwesome (6545) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - AUG 15, 2014
Bottle bought in Lewes shared with McTapps. I would compare that one a bit to an oud bruin due to its sweetish, mild taste and aromas of chocolate, some malt and bit of sugar. Drinkable and easy going with a nice creamy end. Liked it.
